Humulus are a band from Italy that plays a very psychedelic form of stoner rock and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Heading Into Nowhere" which was released by Oak Island Records.
Powerful sounding bass guitars start off the ep and they also give the songs a 70's metal feeling along with some heavy and melodic riffs a few seconds later and after awhile clean vocals are added onto the recording along with some acoustic guitars also being added into certain sections of the recording.
While the music has a lot of retro influences it still sounds very modern at the same time and the solos and leads also remain very true to a 70's rock style and elements of doom metal can also be heard at times and clean guitars are also utilized at times and as the ep progresses the music gets more psychedelic along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced direction,
Humulus plays a style of stoner rock that is very heavy and psychedelic sounding as well as mixing both the 70's and modern styles together, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Humulus are a very great sounding psychedelic stoner rock band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Catskull" and "The Great Hunt". 8 out of 10.
